    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is super informative and the professor is really interested in what she is teaching which makes the class much more interesting. This class is especially great if you like history--not so much if you don't want to spend three or four weeks talking about the origins of Christianity in the early Middle Ages. Overall however, this class has been very fascinating and helped me to understand that there is more to the middle ages than knights and castles.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned a lot about the Roman Empire and how it divided as well as how it eventually fell. I've learned a lot about religions that began gaining in popularity at the beginning of the middle ages such as the rise of Christianity and the rise of Islam and how the rise of those religions led to different cultures, outlooks on life, and of course, wars. I've learned about the different kings that wound up leading to the rise of what we view as the middle ages, such as Charlemagne, and the introduction of feudalism in the middle ages. There is so much more to it than that, but these are some of the highlights.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say be ready for a lot of reading and really truly read the material. In this particular class, we aren't truly tested on the material, but we write lots of essays and papers and the professor grades those essays based on how well we read the material. Even though you aren't tested on the material, write down the information she gives you in her lectures. Because she only uses powerpoints as an outline, it's easy to get distracted and not listen-- one of the best ways to actively listen and retain the information she gives you is by taking notes on it.
